Building Healthy Relationship

Building Healthy Relationship

If you are building up the Relationship with someone

First try to achieve your aims by staying focused. Try to be self reliant.

When you try to make friendship, discreetly verify his or her background. Else you might regret later.

Show respect to your friend

Be honest and frank.

Always remember that growing friendship means not getting sexually involved.

Don't mistake raging hormones for love. They are two entirely different things.

Talk with your parents and well wishers before you begin friendship.

Out of respect for your parents and yourself, you should always let them know: where you are going, a phone number where you can be reached, who you are going out with and when you will return.

Make it a point to be home by before night.

If you run into trouble and you are going to be late, call and let both sets of parents know.

Avoid risky situations like going to far off places, meeting strangers, getting intoxicated for a change or for ‘fun’ where some things might happen that you will regret for life later.

Make sure you have an emergency plan in place in case your friend becomes forceful or violent. The "It won't happen to me," plan is not good enough.
